KIA’S CONCEPT EV9 COMBINES PROGRESSIVE DESIGN, STATE-OFTHE-ART TECH AND AN ALL-ELECTRIC POWERTRAIN.
The EV market in the Middle East stood at a value of USD40.25 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD93.10 million by 2027. Automobile companies like Kia are taking steps to play their part in helping us move more sustainably.
The SUV concept model designed by Kia ecologically balances interior and exterior manufacturing materials. The flooring is made from recycled fishnets and the seat fabric, from a mix of wool and recycled plastic bottles. Further, the cabin features vegan leather throughout.
The Concept EV9 leans on next-generation, ultra-fast charging technology for peak performance. With its 350-kW charger, the battery electric powertrain is capable of replenishing energy from 10% to 80% in around 20 to 30 minutes, and thus, can run for about up to 500 kilometers.
Car makers today are researching the potential of solar power through curved solar roof systems. Kia’s all-electric concept model already includes this form of energy across its grille. It recuperates electric energy on the road, providing an alternate source of energy when not close to a charging station, thus reducing consumption overall.
With increased social awareness surrounding sustainable living, growing public expectations on the automobile sector and ambitious government targets, car manufacturers are ramping up their green efforts. Kia’s advanced Concept EV9 provides a glimpse into the future; how today’s revolutionary sustainabilityfocused technology and features could become the norm. ✤
